Tablet Usage

The FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) website is optimized for tablet usage on iPad (iOS 6.x and above) and Android devices. (Smartphone usage is not supported.)

“Install this bookmark” popup

The first time you access the Codification through a supported device, you will see a popup message with instructions regarding bookmark installation:


Follow the instructions to add the bookmark to either your home screen or your browser favorites, and close the popup by tapping the ‘x’ at top right.

Please note that the behavior of the popup may vary, depending on your device, browser, operating system version, and/or settings. For your convenience, general instructions for iOS and Android operating systems follow. These directions may require modification, depending on your device’s operating system version number.
